disappointed that pbs became a political target in the presidential debate. governor romney does not understand the value of american people place on public broadcasting and the outstanding return on investment the system delivers to our nation. the federal investment and public broadcasting equals about one, 100th of 1% of the federal budget, elimination of funding would have virtually no impact on the nation's debt, yet the loss to the american public would be devastating. there are some people who say that that was not the best thing to mention, bringing up big bird. >> you're talking about somebody who does like pbs, but who believes the constitution means what it says. lyndon johnon persuade add democratic congress in 1965 that the federal government should own a television station, which became a television network. it's not authorized in the constitution, it's not intended for the federal government to do this. when mitt romney put his finger on that, i'm thinking to myself, this is a symbol. this is a symbol of thousands of other things that the federal government is doing and borrowing
start for governor romney. >> and the next one up of course the vice presidential debate. david gregory, because this was at the end of the day, despite the high stakes, a television show tonight watched by perhaps north of 50 million americans, there is a new half generation of americans coming to this, seeing the format, the stagecraft, the question pods, as jim lehrer in the thankless job, let's put that out, of moderator pointed out. how do you think that will be received? and what's been said so far tonight on social media about it? >> well, you know, it's a good question because i think part of this, as tom alludes to, is what about the undecided voter? do we get to the truth of the matter here? the truth is it's very difficult to get to that. in part because it would be better if there was a little more follow-up. it would be better if they could engage each ooshs interrupt each other a little bit, so we could get to the bottom of something instead of just a list of particulars and some of their talking points. that's the limit here. so we do focus more on who had more energy, wh
else from this presidential campaign, we should always remember how in the first presidential debate mitt romney raised political da seat and lying into an art form. mr. romney may not win the white house but he should certainly win the toby for best actor in a presidential debate. thanks for watching.
